|''Who Said That'' - 30 March 1953|
An episode of "Who Said That?", a panel show. Not sure if you'd call this a game show or not. Hosted by Walter Kiernan, with panelists H.V. Kaltenborn, Dagmar, Deems Taylor and Frank Conniff. Series aired on NBC. Panelists are given a quote in the news, and are asked to name who said it. Features about 25 minutes of actual show and approx 4 minutes of advertising...as you expect for the 1950s prime-time series.

|1953 Episode of ''Juvenile Jury''|
This has been uploaded before, but hopefully this upload has better picture quality....if it doesn't, I promise to delete it. A 1950s panel show featuring young kids answering questions and problems sent in to the show. Yes, this is the infamous episode where a child reveals she has been given the questions in advance. There are perhaps 3 or so other surviving episodes...I'd love to see them.

|Pass the Line (1954 unsold television pilot)|
Here's something so bad it makes "Queen for a Day" look like "Masterpiece Theatre". It is an unsold television pilot from 1954, for a game show called "Pass the Line" in which an artist slowly draws a picture in ten steps, and each step is copied by a panel of "celebrities" (one of which is Jonathan Winters!). At the end of the incredibly awful pilot, the host and some other guy directly speak to the networks telling them why they should pick up the series (easily the best part of the pilot).
